    Default Sammy Hagar: 5 Songs I Wish I Wrote

    I thought this was an interesting take on Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer.

    This is so clever. When I write a song about sex, like "Poundcake," it's so fucking blatant. Peter puts this twist on it where it sounds cutesy-pie.

    Kind of makes me wonder if "Up For Breakfast" was Sam's crack at writing a "cutesy pie" love song in the vein of Sledgehammer, which features this lyric:

    show me round your fruitcage
    'cos I will be your honey bee
    open up your fruitcage
    where the fruit is as sweet as can be

    Those first 4 are all solid choices. I've never understood the big deal about #5.

    Agreed!
    Neat that Sam has his pulse on the newer scene though...

    I'm not a fan of Kings of Leon (per se). But I don't mind that song. And mostly it's probably reminiscent of something from the 80's? can't quite make the connection though? something from Fast Times?... or Eddie Money?... dunno.

    YOU must know what I'm trying to think of Mr. Youtube! lol

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    I wouldn't pick any of those, but wtf, it's his list.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Guessing Eddie got a Google alert when this article posted and we can look forward to a quote in his next interview that Sammy should wish that he had actually written more of his hits in Van Halen, since Eddie did most of it

    My niece has always liked them. They are just so boring and generic in every way. Really, true of most of the modern day "rock" bands.
